You may earn a Doctor Ph.D. Degree (Doctor of Philosophy) online via distance learning in any major of study. The North American education systems considers several doctorate degree options. The Ph.D. (Doctor of Philosophy) is earned after successful completion and defense of a theoretical research on any specialization. This research is presented in the form of a doctoral thesis. The D.S. (Doctor of Science) is the consequence of a research based primarily on a laboratory work or an empirical investigation. The conclusions are also published on a thesis. There are also professional doctorates such as M.D. (Medical Doctor) or J.D. (Juris Doctor) which are earned only after successful completion of several years of professional practice among other requirements.
